build system changed? cannot build any module

Hi Andrew!

I cannot build any external module (acerhk, pwc), in all the cases it
the make run looks similar:
make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build SUBDIRS=/src/hotkey/acerhk-0.5.25 modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.13-rc3-mm2' scripts/ /usr/src/linux-2.6.13-rc3-mm2//src/hotkey/acerhk-0.5.25/Makefile: No such file or directory
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/src/linux-2.6.13-rc3-mm2//src/hotkey/acerhk-0.5.25/Makefile'. Stop.

Has something fundamentally changed in the way external modules should
be build?

Best wishes
